Chapter News

We will be back!

  • We currently have no concerts scheduled at Woking due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  We are considering how and when we can resume concerts and are in regular contact with the centre management.  The situation is regularly reviewed. 
  • The UK Young Theatre Organist of the Year will be hosted as soon as it is practical to do so.
  • The Paul Kirner's Music Palace trip to Porth, which was due to take place on Saturday 4th April 2020, will be rescheduled this once we feel it is safe to do so.

This website will be updated as new information becomes available.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact our chapter trustees, who's details may be found HERE.    


ATOS USA Election results

With over 700 votes returned in 2021, over 40% of our membership engaged in the process of voting.  Not many organizations can say that!

Number of ballots cast – 704

Results (in alphabetical order):

  • George Andersen – 508
  • Dave Calendine – 565
  • David M. Finkel – 504
  • Ed Garcia – 473

We did receive five votes that arrived with a late postmark.  None of the results would have changed if those were counted.  There were no blank or illegal votes.


ATOS USA Conventions

The "Unconventional Convention", held in summer 2021, was successful. The links are available through the ATOS website and on YouTube.

We are still on track for the 2022 convention in San Diego, California, USA, from 3-7 July subject to whatever comes along.

Help Needed

We need your support in the following ways:

  • Chapter trustees.  You would need to be registered as a trustee of the charity, be able to support the organisation and attend committee meetings (either in person or virtually, e.g. via Zoom).
  • Woking concert set up and take down.  We would particularly welcome local people who can regularly help with this or pop into the centre when required as none of the committee live in Surrey, let alone Woking!
  • Woking concert raffle.  Organise obtaining good quality prizes, selling tickets at the concerts, help with the draw and cash up at the end of the evening.

If you think you can help or wish to learn more then please contact one of the ATOS trustees who's details you can find HERE.
